In Term 4, we will be learning about Measurement in our Maths sessions. In preparation for this unit, we ask that all students have access to a measuring tape that measures at least 1 metre. This could come in a variety of ways, for example: 

If you are having trouble accessing one of these items, please contact your homegroup teacher.

We would like to thank you for all your hard work and persistence in completing yet another term of Remote Learning. It has been a term of growth, resilience and fun. Thank you for bringing along your energy, positivity and smiles to our Google Meets each day.
